Abu Ilias al-Swissri (Daniel D.)
Place of Birth: Geneva, Switzerland;
Born in Geneva to Swiss and Spanish parents, Daniel D. is Switzerland’s most dangerous jihadist by counter-terrorism experts after leaving Switzerland in 2015 to join Islamic State terrorist group.
He was reportedly captured by Syrian forces in June of last year when he was aged 24. The condition of Daniel D, also known by his alias Abu Ilias al-Swissri, is unclear as he has little contact with the outside world from his cell in Syria.
Switzerland has been foiled in its desire to cancel the citizenship of a terror suspect currently being held in a jail in Syria. The migration office did not know that Spain has acted faster in withdrawing the passport of the dual citizen.
This means that Switzerland cannot also turn its back on the terror suspect, known as Daniel D, as it would leave him stateless.
A letter seen by the Swiss public broadcaster SRF, dated mid-June, suggests that a months-long process by the State Secretariat for Migration to cancel Daniel D’s citizenship has been in vain. It appears that Spain stripped him of citizenship in 2015.
